Other Organizations: The Lions Club

The Lions Club

ASL students serve in the local Lions Club in many ways to fulfill the mission of the national organization.

The World's Largest Service Club Organization

The national organization identifies 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members as affiliated with it, thus making it the world's largest service club organization.  It also asserts that it is "one of the most effective."
Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat, and with people we may never meet.

The Lions Club Vision Statement
To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.

The Lions Club Mission Statement

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

Activities and Events Sponsored by ASL Students and Other Local Members

The local club engages in a number of service projects.  It helps conduct eye and ear exams at Remote Area Medical clinics.  It collects old eye glasses through its system of eye glass drop boxes.  It raises funds through the sale of game programs at every home game held at Grundy High School.  Proceeds fund a college scholarship for a Grundy High School student.  The Lions also buy glasses for impoverished kids.  An annual radio auction raises additional funds for these activities.
